Prison, Hospital Send Power to California Grid
SunEdison and its affiliate TerraForm Power completed the interconnection of a 2.6 MW DC system at the Coalinga State Hospital and a 1.6 MW DC system at the Pleasant Valley State Prison. The systems were installed for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and California Department of State Hospitals.
SunEdison says it has installed 40 MW DC of solar at 12 different locations for the CDCR in a partnership dating back to 2006.
Energy savings are realized via a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with a subsidiary of TerraForm Power, the owner of the systems. These two commercial and industrial systems represent 4.2 MW DC of the 808 MW DC in TerraForm Power’s initial portfolio following its initial public offering on July 23, 2014.
Operation and maintenance of the two solar power plants will be performed by the SunEdison Renewable Operation Center.
